Daith Piercings And Migraines

 

There has been a lot of talk about the daith piercing lately. Naturally, we are intrigued.



Can a daith piercing help relieve migraine symptoms?

 



We have a had a few people asking about whether there is truth to this or not and while some are inclined to say it's rubbish, we are keeping a close eye on this one. 

So far what we know is that there are quite a few people that claim to have experienced relief from chronic migraines after getting their daith pierced. In some cases, where the individual was experiencing debilitating migraines daily, they now only get them every few weeks and believe it to be as a result of the piercing.

The daith is that last little fold before your ear hole. (Pictured above) Some medical professionals have suggested that the possibility of the piercing helping with migraines could likely to work similar to the way acupuncture can for headaches. The principle is that the piercing mimics acupuncture by hitting a pressure point, which relieves the pressure in the patient’s head.


While that sounds plausable,it is important to know that there is no medical evidence to prove that it is effective. At this point there's a lot of suggestions and testaments but there have been no official studies or research to back them up. Dr Fayyaz Ahmed, a neurologist and trustee of the charity The Migraine Trust, said there is no evidence that daith piercing work to help migraines.The benefits of acupuncture for the affliction are based on small studies, he added.'There is no evidence for such treatment."
